    He wouldn't have missed those had he chosen to dunk. Capela should try to jam it anything within 5 feet of the basket. Gotta play to your strengths and he did not. Still, he is so freaking young. Like somebody said, I would like to see Capela being setup for a real playmaker like Harden. He would undoubtedly look tons better.

    I do love his ability to block shots. Great, great potential right there.

    Some guys might have followed him when he was still 18 and 19 so let them.

    He might not improved much since then.

    Lebron was ready for the league when he was 18 so yeah some guys 'get it' faster.

    To be honest with you, Clint played like he was shocked that he even got playing time. Like someone said before, dude looked nervous as hell in that game.

    i honestly haven't seen enough of him to make any judgement yet. it could just be the jitters the 2 games he's been in so far. maybe he actually shows us something the 3rd time. regarding the age i was simply saying he's 20 (and not that it necessarily means it's too late for him or anything)

    I'm guessing we might have traded two players (maybe Black and Dorsey?) for a pick or something

    I saw Capela play against the Austin Spurs this past Sunday. He was quite underwhelming.

    I'm thinking that or Capela is in trade talks. Vipers play tomorrow so I don't think it's practice.
